Hey travel lovers! I’m Verena, the writer behind the travel blog Postcards from V. I’ve been traveling since I’m a child and it got my real passion and lifeblood. If at the beach, in the mountains or in one of the biggest metropoles on earth, the unforgettable impressions and memories are what always matters most to me.
The enthusiasm for traveling comes probably through my parents. Since they are traveling a lot, my brother and I had the chance to see the world with them. So we traveled from Namibia to Australia to America and so on. But still my thirst for different countries, cities, people, food and cultures is not satisfied – not at all! So I try to travel as much as I can (eco-friendly of course). And here on Postcards from V I can welcome you to follow me on my trips.
The greatest inspiration for my blog name was my mom,
always asking me to send her postcards from my trips.
I started blogging because for me it’s important to write down and share my experiences with you and to inform you about the good and bad things in life. Also, I want to encourage you to take that first step, to work up the courage to go on new adventures and to motivate you to achieve your own goals.
I studied journalism and worked for several newspapers/magazines and in the online (marketing) business. All these jobs have shown me how important words are and that there is always a reason to bring words alive. Because with my own words I can touch others and help them begin their own journeys. That’s why I started blogging and that’s why Postcards from V exists now.
